Mr. Guzman concentrates his practice on civil defense litigation and insurance coverage. He provides representation to insurance carriers in coverage litigation regarding claims under general liability coverage, commercial property policies, breach of contract and bad faith. He also represents defendants in civil litigation involving premises liability, transportation, product liability, and construction.

With appearances in administrative, state, and federal courts, Mr. Guzman is known for his professionalism and fearless approach to advocacy. So much so, that it prompted one federal judge from the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois to state on the record that Jaime “exhibited a measure of courtesy that is unfortunately all too rare in today’s fractious and overly competitive atmosphere. [His] conduct is proof that lawyers can act civilly and courteously in their dealings with each other and with the opposing party without sacrificing in the slightest the obligations they owe to their clients and to the court.” Docket entry, December 3, 2019, ECF No.69, PageID#414, 17-cv-07056.

Mr. Guzman joined Sanchez Daniels & Hoffman LLP after four years of experience at a boutique personal injury firm doing plaintiff’s work. He gained valuable experience on matters of workers’ compensation claims, personal injury claims including product liability, catastrophic injuries, wrongful death, and 42 U.S.C.§ 1983 civil rights claims.

Before engaging in the practice of law, Mr. Guzman served as a legislative staffer to a Cook County commissioner and a Chicago alderman. Mr. Guzman has also worked on community development initiatives and special purpose districts centered on economic development.
